“The issue of bad roads and infrastructural decay in the country were responsible for this agitation and it needs urgent attention to avoid another Boko Haram insurgency in the country.
“Igbo traditional rulers should be invited in finding a solution to this issue of Biafra.
“The country is right now fully in control of its security situation and the issue of Biafra should urgently be attended to before it escalates to what we do not expect,” he said.

Meanwhile, Matthew Kukah, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, has also shared his views on what is the best solution in Biafra crisis.
Speaking about the detention of Nnamdi Kanu, the director of Radio Biafra, Bishop Kukah said: “A military and judicial approach would not work. We are in a democracy where dialogue, diplomacy and patience are the hallmarks of good leadership.”
